Spiritual Steps Addiction to Fear, Separation, Knowing and Control
We admitted we were powerless over our addiction; that our thoughts, judgements, opinions, beliefs, fears and feelings, and all our efforts to know and control existence, all of which we once held in the belief of separation to be the truth of ourselves, others and the world were totally insane, and that for as long as we identified with these beliefs life would be experienced as hell.
We came to know that a Power Greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care and guidance of God as we understood God.
We made a searching, fearless and conscious inventory of the insane beliefs we had been holding as the truth of ourselves and others.
We admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of these mistaken beliefs.
We were entirely ready to surrender and allow God to correct and heal these mistaken beliefs about ourselves and others.
We humbly asked God to help us forgive and release all of our mistaken beliefs in separation, levels, differences and degrees.
We opened our hearts to all the beloveds we had ever held mistaken beliefs about, and became willing to remember the Truth about all of them and all beloveds AS the Pure Innocence of God.
We engaged through the heart of Love directly with such beloveds wherever possible, except when to do so might cause further alienation for them or others, asking for guidance from God to show us what is most helpful.
We continued to engage with deep attention, honesty and presence any beliefs that remained active in our relationships with others and ourselves, and when we were mistaken we promptly surrendered into forgiveness for correction of our mistakes, turning all of it over to God.
We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious connection with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God’s will for us, and for the power, strength and courage to surrender each moment and every thought into the Hands of God.
Because of our spiritual healing we vowed to serve only Love, the Truth of our Self, all Beloveds, and all of Existence.
